Every last stitch is done.
The breeze early this morning made outdoor photography tricky, so I tried inside later. ( see how pretty the Luculia is in the background )
Sideways looks so different. I don't remember a quilt before that looks so different when viewed from different angles.( it almost strobes. )
I have now ended up with more photos than I need and none quite to my liking. Where were my helpful extra hands when I need them, to hold it up straight for me?
I have also been baking.
2 nut cookies, using walnuts ( no surprise there ) and almonds .... very yummy. Next time I will try part ground almonds in place of some of the flour. I need to take something tasty to share with the ladies when we sew charity quilts tomorrow.
I have also been in the garden. I took runners from my old strawberry plants( in the background ) and gave them a new bed in the foreground. When that parsley id finished some more can go in - couldn't bear to pull it out. ) R has since unscrewed the 4 screws and we shifted the frame to the new plot. ( The lid lifts off.) It's not to protect fruit at this stage but rather to stop any peacock, pukeko, pheasant, possum or other pest from pulling out the plants. With the chilly weather pests seem to be eating all sorts of strange things in my garden. The rat bait has been disappearing in the sheds like hot cakes. We know they are hanging around waiting for us to drop the odd shelled walnut or put out the shells with little bits or not good ones in.... easy food. I think we will win in the end.
Tomorrow I am making charity quilts with the ladies - all day! That usually is fun.
